Nollywood actress, Adunni Ade, has recounted some worst times in her life as she reveals that her father cut off all financial support after she got pregnant with her first child whilst in school.
According to Adunni in a lengthy post on her Instagram page, she felt she had failed in life as her hero was disappointed in her that his first daughter will have a child out of wedlock.
She revealed that she had nothing and thought she was never going to make it through because of how terrible her life had become.
However, she claimed that one thing that kept her going was her child, D’marion as the way he looked at her gave her a different meaning to life. She conceded she is nowhere near her goals in life but things have changed.
The film star disclosed this on her Instagram account as she appreciated her two sons and how they have influenced her career growth.
“These past few days have been overwhelming! I remember when I found out I was pregnant with D’marion, it felt like the world came caving in on me,” she wrote.
“A whole lot happened to me. My Dad was so hurt that his first daughter was pregnant (out of wedlock, I understood ). I was a senior at college. It was the worst time of my life. All financial support was cut off!”
The actress credited her success story to her sons, revealing how they drive her to get the job done.
“These 2 miracles of mine have given me a chance to live again! My drive! My focus! All I have done! All I am! All for my Boys. Thank you D’marion. Thank you Ayden for giving me a reason to live again!” she concluded.
